In this crucial year for the 5 Cuban Patriots we need to multiply the actions for their freedom, especially in the capital of the United States. The International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 is making a call to solidarity organizations and friends in the U.S. and around the world to support “5 consecutive days for the Cuban 5”.

 

These actions will take place from April 17-21 in Washington D.C., and will include:  

  • Large event with the participation of US and international personalities;
  • Lobby and delivery of information to members of Congress and the U.S. Senate;
  • Showing of documentaries in universities and other public spaces;
  • Media outreach;
  • Meeting with religious groups of different denominations; and
  • Informational tables and cultural activities.

In addition to the activities mentioned above organizers are planning to place thousands of “Obama Give me Five” posters at key points in the city and publish ads in several media outlets.

 

GET INVOLVED BY JOINING THIS EFFORT TO BRING AWARENESS ABOUT THE CASE OF THE CUBAN 5 IN WASHINGTON D.C.
